WiiThe Next Level (May 21, 2008)
It really doesn’t matter which version you choose as long as you have to proper controls. It may seem as if Arc System Works is whoring out the series for everything it’s worth and while that may be true, Accent Core is a much different game to those who have played it before. With new mechanics, a rebalance of the characters, and tweak to the overall presentation, Accent Core becomes the definitive addition to an already fantastic series. As one of the deepest and most versatile 2D fighters ever, the question shouldn’t be whether or not to buy it, but rather for which system? Let’s hope an Xbox LIVE-enabled version isn’t too far off.

I just wish there was a little more animation in the backgrounds, like Street Fighter 2 used to have. Even the rapid-fire set-up screens are amazing to behold, so there's never a dull moment. If there's one thing that turns me off about Guilty Gear, it's the energetic but utterly forgettable guitar-grinding soundtrack. Guilty Gear XX Accent Core doesn't represent a big step forward for the series, but it's probably the definitive version of the game.

Aficionados of the beat ‘em up genre will know all about the Guilty Gear series, however the vast majority of Nintendo Wii owners are casual gamers and probably without a Gamecube or classic controller. Gamestyle promises for those that do make the required double purchase, a game that is the best fighting experience on the system.

These days, you really don't have many choices when it comes to new 2D fighting games for your home consoles, but Guilty Gear XX Accent Core should offer enough action and variety for most fans of this sort of game. If you're new to the series, you may be taken aback by just how strange its characters are, as well as by the twitchy, fast-paced gameplay dominated by long strings of combination attacks. Nevertheless, you'll get used to it quickly enough. If you're a Guilty Gear veteran, you'll probably find enough to like about Accent Core to make it worth your while, too.

Totalement injouable avec les contrôles standards, Guilty Gear XX Accent Core devient un excellent jeu de combat 2D avec une manette alternative (rajoutez 2 points à la note finale). Grâce à ses personnages originaux, son humour omniprésent et son gameplay aussi riche qu'efficace, la célèbre série réussit une nouvelle fois à imposer son style old-school inimitable.
WiiConsole Monster (Apr 02, 2008)
The game doesn’t feel like it was made for the Nintendo Wii as at no point in the game do players require to point the Wii Remote towards the sensor bar. And with Super Smash Bros. Brawl releasing on the Nintendo Wii very soon, Guilty Gear Core Accent XX Λ Core will quickly end up collecting dust in nearly anyones game collection. I only see hardcore fans of Guilty Gear and/or 2D fighting games playing Guilty Gear Core for longer than a week or two as there’s not enough within the game to keep most players playing.

The layered backgrounds have an attractive, hand-illustrated appearance. Stage locations include London, a fairytale forest, a Japanese tea garden, and Hell. If only there were as many stages as characters. In terms of audio, that announcer sounds pretty wimpy, but the guitar-driven soundtrack gives the game an edge. High scores are automatically saved, along with extensive statistics for each playing mode. Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus may sound like a joke, but it doesn't play like one. Casual gamers may find themselves overwhelmed, but those with an appetite for 2D fighting will have plenty to chew on.
WiiNintendo Life (Mar 25, 2008)
It’s very likely that GG:AC is the most gorgeous 2D fighter you’ll ever lay eyes on but the fact remains that it’s badly compromised by the terrible motion-sensitive control. A general lack of originality is also a key issue, but having said all that fans of the series will be perfectly at home here – so long as they pick up a Classic Controller and shun the terrible default control scheme.
WiigameZine (UK) (Apr 09, 2008)
Guilty Gear XX Accent Core is worth checking out, particularly if one likes the 2D fighting genre. While lacking anything significantly new, its tried and tested formula still provides relatively exciting and vivid gameplay with absorbing characters and visuals. May be worth picking up a Classic Controller before hand though!
60 (UK) (Apr 17, 2008)
If you're a newcomer to the series, this doesn't offer an accessible introduction. It's not the kind of beat-'em-up suitable for mucking about with friends after a night in the pub, unless you're all Guilty Gear fans. Nor is it likely to impress anyone expecting super-sharp next-gen visuals and fluid animations. A difficult one to score, then. Add two to the number below if you like Guilty Gear, and subtract two if you couldn't give a toss about this sort of thing.

It’s also a tragedy that such a fantastic game is crushed beneath the weight of such an ill-advised system. Yeah, sure, you can easily side step this one with the use of the Classic Controller, but, really how many of you already own one of them? With it, Guilty Gear XX Core is exactly the same as it is on the PS2. It’s a game of unrivalled depth sporting a back-plot spanning three great games well written enough to make [insert generic JRPG here] look down at their shoes and shuffle their feet with embarrassment. The problem, and the only problem, lies here:
By the end of the day Guilty Gear is a fun game that brings back some great memories of 2D fighting and considering that your options are slim to none on 2D fighters, Guilty Gear XX Accent Core may be your best, if not only, pick.
